Over 300 people were killed in Sri Lanka on Easter after a series of blasts in multiple churches and hotels across the country. As tributes to the victims flooded social media, dairy brand Amul also paid its respect to the deceased with a poignant cartoon.
Dedicating their latest cartoon to the victims of the serial blasts in the island nation, the dairy brand captured the agony of the families who are mourning the deaths of their loved ones. Featuring the ‘Amul girl’ crying, the cartoon highlights the pain of the island’s residents.
With a tagline, “Heartless. Defenceless. Senseless.” along with a teardrop in shape of Sri Lanka, the cartoon highlights the brutal, senseless attack on defenceless worshipers and innocent people.
